Choosing a CMS (content management system) is an important first step to building your own website. The CMS provides a simpler way to manage website content without much prior knowledge of HTML, CSS, or other web programming languages. As using the web continues to grow quickly, new CMSs arrive to handle websites in different ways. Below are a few tips on picking the right CMS for your website.
Choose the CMS that fits your websites purpose.
Not all content management systems are created equal. You need to look at the main functions of your website to find the CMS that is right for you. If you are going to be working with a blog, one that provides a quick easy publishing from anywhere maybe good for you. Systems are available that allow users to make new blog post through the usual backend interface, but also by email and through applications on the iPhone, Android, and Blackberry devices. Alternatively some CMS’s are designed with multimedia in mind. These CMS are aimed at providing the best tools for audio and video sharing, but do not provide the robust text authoring tools that blogging platform would provide.
